Prescott Fire Department Gives Tips for Winter Hiking
Despite the cold and the snow, some folks still like to go hiking during the winter. The Prescott Fire Department wants to make sure if you do that, you do it safely. Fire officials recommend you do research on the trail you want to hike, as conditions could be different during the winter than during the summer. Make sure you have reliable winter gear with you, along with water, food, flashlights, a fully charged cell phone, and sunscreen. Also before you leave, check the current weather conditions and be sure to tell someone where you are going.
